Abstract: Japan has been criticized for its continuous & regular interventions in the foreign exchange market. The motive behind these interventions was to control the extreme movement of the yen with respect to other currencies like the US dollar. But the intervention by the Bank of Japan on September 15, 2010, was different from the earlier ones as it was the first time it was being done after March 31, 2004, when the government of Japan had to interfere in the foreign exchange market.

The September 2010 intervention caused a variety of reactions across the world. This case analyzes the complete story of Japanese intervention including the political and economic situation during the intervention period. A parallel approach is used to critically analyze the relevance of such interference in the present globally integrated market structure.
